Track Name: Dadgummit
I can eat crackers in my bed if I want to
Stay up all night.. watching TV
I don’t mind the dirty clothes, I just keep my closet door closed
Since my baby walked out on me.

I could hit the night-spots, I could go crazy
Sail off to Bimini … I’m as free as a breeze
I don’t have to stay at home, I love sitting here alone
Since my baby walked out on me
chorus
But Dadgummit, I still love her
I just can’t stop thinking of her
And I can’t deny, I was wrong
Can’t eat. can’t sleep since my baby’s gone
bridge
I bet the boys down at Joe’s would come unglued
To see a grown man on his knees
But I’d crawl from here to Timbuktu
To give my baby one more chance with me
She said she found a new diet plan
It calls for her to lose a man
My life’s sugar free
since my baby walked out on me
solo
chorus
But Dadgummit, I still love her
I ain’t never, never, never gonna find another
Peaches and Cream… she was my dream
My baby walked right out on ...
My baby walked right out on me
Oh, my baby…. my baby walked out on me
(not him, not them, she still likes men... she just hates ME)
Track Name: Wishes of My Heart
Let her go… say goodbye
No excuses, no alibis
She’s gone away
Against the wishes of my heart

Late night….
I lie here and she’s not with me
I’m all alone
Against the wishes of my heart
Chorus
My heart don’t speak that language
You broke it in two
After all the time we spent together
Can’t face a day without you

Solo
Repeat chorus

So goodbye
Goodbye
I’m gonna walk away
Against the wishes of my heart….
Against the wishes of my heart
Track Name: Portales
You ain’t got no money.. your Visa was declined
That’s what the cashier told me
She said, “You’re holdin’ up the line”
The pretty girl behind me rolled her eyes and shook her head
I was diggin’ in my jeans for my last ten dollar bill
And I wished that I was dead

But that’s life in Portales
The only place we’re better than is Dallas
That’s life in Goober Gulch
God help me please

I was there buying beer, she was picking up some cheese
And while the cashier was engaged in higher mathematics
We began to shoot the breeze
She said, “I think I know you… Didn’t you work down at Sears”?
I said, “Yeah, but that was when I was in high school…
During my first Junior year”

That’s life in Portales
I told her my favorite team was whoever was playin’ Dallas
That’s life in Goober Gulch
God help me please.
solo
She said, “I see you bought some Rolling Rock”
“Yes mam, that’s the only brand I drink”
I said, “I see you purchased some Velveeta”
She said, “You bet I did… Them fancy foreign cheeses STINK”

That’s life in Portales
Who’d a thunk I’d run into Alice
That’s life in Goober Gulch
God help me please

Now, I got a whole lot a so-called sophisticated friends
Who turn their nose up at Rolling Rock
And those same damn snobby people
Go for cheese that tastes like a week old sock
This was a match made in heaven... the best day of my life
And come next Christmas morning, I’m gonna make her my third wife

Merry Christmas from Portales
Even baby Jesus ain’t too keen on Dallas
Merry Christmas from me and Alice
God help us please
Rolling Rock…. Velveeta Cheese
Track Name: Mostly Mornings
Mostly Mornings when it’s misty
Them old grey clouds ridin’ low
Hangin’ o’er me, like her sweet memory
From not that long ago

Mostly Mornings… that’s when it hits me
This time she’s really gone away
So I tell me lies… drink alibis
Just to get me through the day

Chorus

She begged me to give her one good reason
Just one reason to remain
All she ever wanted was sunshine
All I gave her was rain

Solo
Repeat chorus
Solo

Mostly Summers, Mostly Winters
Mostly all the time, it seems
But Mostly Mornings, that’s when I miss my darlin’
‘Cause that’s when I’ve just held her in my dreams
I’ve just held her in dreams
Track Name: I'll Waltz You Home
I’ll Waltz you home, I’ll waltz you home
Come to my arms little darlin’
And I’ll waltz you home

Here we go dancin’ again we know this old tune by heart
We know how this fight’s gonna end the moment it starts
One step leads to another as sure as the night leads to day
When one of us tries to get closer, the other one dances away

Chorus

Sometimes when lovers get angry
They don’t mean the words that they say
When harsh words get spoken it’s too late to take them away
Let’s stop the music a minute…. see if we can’t change this song
Come to my arms little darlin’ and I’ll waltz you home

Chorus
Solo
Bridge

We’re spinnin’ and whirlin’ in danger of losing control
But our love is so strong.. it’s lasted so long
We’d be fools to let go
I don’t want a new partner and I can’t face dancin’ alone
So come to my arms little darlin’ and I’ll waltz you home

Chorus twice and tag
Track Name: The Night John Huston Died
He loved the game of poker, that's how I knew him best
By that time he was older, there was a cloud upon his chest
And if he won or lost his expression never changed
John was a student of the game

He wasn't much of a husband, he was married to his work
There were millions who loved him and a precious few he hurt
He was a man of vision who saw the world in frames
John was a master of the game

Chorus
And I saw Sierra Madre when I was just a kid
Somehow I had to find out how he did the things he did
His Red Badge of Courage, his African Queen
He taught me about life, casting shadows on a screen

No full house was showing the night John Huston died
Just faithful Maracella was sitting by his side
He found her hand and raised it high
A champ at the final bell
The last thing John said was "Give 'em Hell"

Chorus

He loved the game of poker, that's how I knew him best
By that time he was older, there was a cloud upon his chest
And if he won or lost his expression never changed
John was a student of the game
